N55 Walkinghouse

N55 is a group of artists and designers who have some interesting ideas.  I have been interested in the Walkinghouse since I first saw it.  Here is a link to its “manual” and here is a video of it walking in Copenhagen.  I selfishly wish they were doing this somewhere closer to me.  While on this website, its worth checking out some of their other ideas.  They are broken up into “manuals” and they also have a book you can download.

I like much of their design and hope to continue to see more as they progress.

My only real problem with this design is the lack of an easy-entry door.  I couldn’t imagine climbing in while holding anything (like a sack of groceries).  I do find the combination of solar-electric, hydraulic drive, and wood heat to be intriguing.
